ec2: All content tagged as ec2 in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
The Amazon team released a whitepaper comparing the total cost of ownership for 3 scenarios:
- on-premise NoSQL database
- NoSQL database deployed on Amazon EC2 and Amazon EBS
- Amazon DynamoDB
As you can imagine DynamoDB comes out as the most cost-effective solution (79% more effective than on-premise NoSQL database and 61% more cost-effective than AWS hosted NoSQL database). Read or download the paper after the break.
The only thing I dislike about that EC2 guide is that it’s suggesting to use EBS instead of the regular EC2 instance storage
This is an apt question in the light of the prolongued Amazon outage, Reddit’s experience with EBS, the unpredictable EBS performance, and Netflix’s Adrian Cockcroft explanation of multi-tenancy impact on the Amazon EBS performance. Maybe someone could answer it.
